    If you have any superannuation you may be eligible to access this early to have the surgery. I think I read this on the O Clinic in NSW website. Goodluck

  3. Hi everyone
    Looking at getting sleeved. I live in brisbane Australia. Does anyone know what health fund would be best to join and A good surgeon that doesn't charge to much. I am on a pension and looking after my disabled hubby, so money is tight, but if i don't do something soon, I will be in a wheelchair in a few years. Any info that anyone can give me would be appreciated costs ect. Thanks

Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have not had a gastric sleeve.
hi, my name is Elaine and I have been big all my life. I had a gastric band 24 years ago with no success. I have been on diets since the age of 5 and now at the age of 44, due to my weight and caring for my disabled hubby for the last 10 years, I now have bad osteoarthritis in both hips and my spine(which is causing sciatica in both legs. My doctor says i will definately need hip replacements but if i don't lose weight i will probably need 3 in each hip over my lifetime. On a good note, I have 4 fantastic kids, a wonderful hubby and 2 gorgeous grandchildren. I want to be able to play with them and not be in a wheelchair in the next 10 years. Wanting to sign up to health insurance so i can get sleeved in a year :)
Brisbane, Australia
